POLICE and CFA were last week investigating the cause of a fire which almost completely destroyed a house in Seacombe Grove, Ventnor on Tuesday/Wednesday, April 16/17 last week.
Neighbours of the unoccupied home raised the alarm at about 12 midnight but firefighters found the property well alight by the time they arrived.
They did however do an excellent job of stopping the blaze from spreading to homes next door.
Police have not yet released the findings of their investigation, which is standard practice after a house fire, but circumstances don’t appear to be suspicious.
